I am a Court Clerk for the Village of Owego, NY. As I was cleaning out some file cabinets, I came across a very old Webster's Dictionary with Richard L. Hedge's name on it that he apparently got for Christmas in 1926. Would like to pass it on to his family if they are interested in having it. Does anyone know how I would get in touch with them?
